- Fondazione Valsè Pantellini

Please contact the Pantellini Foundation in order to establish a proper prevention outline (scheme) based on possible personal generic risk factors such as past (family) medical history and blood analysis interpretation (blood test data).

In absence of mentioned risk factors and with normal blood analysis data (i.e. within the norms), adults can generally take potassium ascorbate or the enriched formula with ribose daily in the morning on empty stomach, 15 minutes before breakfast, for an indefinite time.

Generally speaking, children may take the following doses for the sake of prevention according to their age:

  • from 3 to 12 years old: one dose per week
  • from 12 to 15 years old: one to two doses per week
  • from 15 to 18 years old: one dose every other day

Risk factors for which it might be adviseable to take potassium ascorbate:

  • smoking (active and passive)
  • exposure to environmental pollution
  • exposure to electromagnetic fields
  • exposure to/handling of toxic substances
  • poorly balanced diets, incorrect (i.e. lack of or excessive) intake of proteins, carbohydrates, salts, vitamins, saturated and unsaturated fat
  • extended emotional stress, also induced by psycho-biological problems

Medical history:

  • personal medical history
  • current state of health

Family medical history:

  • presence of cardiovascular (including high blood pressure) or degenerative diseases in the family (parents, uncles, aunts, grand-parents etc).

Minimum blood test data needed for evaluation:

  • hemocrome with differential leucocyte count (overview of 5 sub-groups of white blood cells)
  • electrolytes (sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium)
  • ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate)
  • CRP (C-reactive protein)
  • total proteins
  • protein electrophoresis
  • transaminase
  • GammaGT (GGT)
  • alkaline phosphatase
  • LDH (lactate dehydrogenase)
  • urine tests
